U.K. based act band Conspires To... has issued the following comments on the inspiration for the band's songs:
"The mind works in mysterious ways. Sometimes I can go weeks with no inspiration, then get hit with loads of ideas at once. The inspiration can last a day or two, or for months, it all seems pretty random, and I could never really work out where the ideas were coming from. Then I started to have some really vivid and seemly random dreams, which would wake me up and leaving me thinking 'what was that all about.'
"I would mention this to my wife, who would start to offer suggestions as to what might have been the catalyst for these nocturnal visions. These ranged from pretty obvious things like, the movie we watched before we went to bed, to something someone had said, or somewhere we had been. Things sometimes tracked back to really innocuous and seemingly irrelevant happening.
Anyway this started me thinking about where some of my songs were coming from. Allegiance was started by the General Election and the World Cup, although I did n't directy have this in mind when I wrote it. Kill the King came to me whils mowing the lawn, probably nothing to do with that, although may it have had some parallel's with Stephen King's Lawn Mower man, but thinking back I had had a particularly crap week at work.....well it speaks for itself really.
"The new song I am working on hit me out of the blue, it is called From the Deep (or Depths I have not decided yet) and is a nautical tale about a giant squid attacking a ship, pretty random I thought. However thinking back what have we been hearing about all through the world cup? The Psychic Octopus!!....I rest my case."
